Aled Davies can take his rugby to new heights according to his new boss at Saracens, Mark McCall.
The Wales scrum-half has left the Ospreys to join the London club, even though they have just been relegated from the Gallagher Premiership.
The move will mean a halt to Davies’s Wales career as he was won 20 caps – 40 less than the 60 required to be eligible for national selection if a player is based outside of the four Welsh regions.
McCall said: “Aled is an experienced, talented player and we are delighted to welcome both him and his family to Saracens.
“He is driven to take his game to new levels and we are excited he has chosen to do that at Saracens.”
The 27-year-old former Scarlets No.9 made his international debut in 2017 and was part of the side that claimed a Six Nations Grand Slam in 2019.
Davies leaves Ospreys after making 120 appearances for the region and is now looking forward to a new challenge in London.
“It’s a great opportunity for me at a massive club,” he said. “It’s a massive honour to come here and I can’t wait to get started.
“It seems like there is a good team and family ethos around the club which is very attractive for me and my family.
“I’m looking forward to putting my stamp on things and making an impact, hopefully.”
